Radcliffe became dependent on alcohol

London: Actor Daniel Radcliffe revealed he became dependent on alcohol when he was 18 while struggling to cope with the pressures of fame.

The 22-year-old actor, who rose to fame in 2001 when he first played the titular role in "Harry Potter and the Philosopher`s Stone", says he started drinking heavily while working on the sixth movie in the franchise, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince".

"I became so reliant on alcohol to enjoy stuff. There were a few years there when I was just so enamoured with the idea of living some sort of famous person`s lifestyle that really isn`t suited to me," femalefirst.co.uk quoted the actor as saying.

Radcliffe gave up alcohol in August last year.
